Let’s say I have this data:
Name_Middle --- Name_First --- Name_Last --- User_Data --- Status Joe_2 Joe_1 Joe_3 Joe_data_1 OK Joe_2 Joe_1 Joe_3 Joe_data_2 !!! Joe_2 Joe_1 Joe_3 Joe_data_1 ОК Sam_2 Sam_1 Sam_3 Sam_data_1 ОК Sam_2 Sam_1 Sam_3 Sam_data_2 !!! Sam_2 Sam_1 Sam_3 Sam_data_3 ОК`
I need to display it in such format:
Name_Middle --- Name_First --- Name_Last --- User_Data --- Data_Status Joe_2 Joe_1 Joe_3 Joe_data_1 OK Joe_data_2 !!! Joe_data_1 ОК Sam_2 Sam_1 Sam_3 Sam_data_1 ОК Sam_data_2 !!! Sam_data_3 ОК`
I could not figure out how to group data by multiple fileds in Access report without combining it in one field (in this case I would lose the ability to sort by first/last name, for example).
And I don’t like the report format, I want the data in pure datasheet view, so I could filter/sort it. Probably the Excel would be the better tool?
I would appreciate any tips, thanks!
I haven’t used reports in years but isn’t this exactly what you’re trying to do?
You can group by more than one field in block format:

DataMagazine : Access: Grouped Report
